If you have been following my blog, you would already know that I am a big fan of dry spices. The truth is that for Chinese cooking, you only need quite a few spices and I have already written about it here.
However I have a serious obsession over spices. When I shop for spices, I am like a kid in a candy store and I always up end buying some exotic spices that I would only use for once and forget about it. So if you are new to spices, I would suggest you sticking with a set of quality common spices and slowly expand outside as you explore different types of cuisines.
If you are currently looking to get your first set of common spices or looking to upgrade your spice jars, you are in real luck! As previous announced, I am partnering with Cooking Planit to give away one Cooking Planit spice set which includes 26 of the most commonly used spices with a retail value of over $100! The giveaway is finally LIVE. Please find the official rules at the end of the post!!
